Job Description

Type: Full-Time (40 hours/week) | Location: London | Start Date: March/April 2024

We are looking for a full-time & permanent London Sales & Relationship Manager. An outgoing and extrovert self-starter with a can-do attitude and drive to help grow our ethical soft drinks brand across London.

Squeezed from fresh fruits without squeezing our growers, Lemonaid and ChariTea started as a Social Enterprise 13 years ago in Germany, with the aim to support the parts of the world frequently disadvantaged in the global economy. Our soft drinks are made from Organic and Fairtrade certified ingredients, sourced from small-farming cooperatives. For every bottle sold, 5p go to the Lemonaid & ChariTea Foundation which supports people and communities in the countries where our ingredients are grown, with over £7 million raised to date. 

The Role 

You will own part of London and surrounding counties as your territory with responsibility for the growth and account management of coffee shops, restaurants, bars, night clubs and independent retailers. From increasing in-store visibility to business development by winning new stockists, you’ll have a wide range of responsibility and freedom in masterminding and executing our field sales strategy. You will join our UK sales and marketing team, whilst being part of a fast-growing international social business with offices across Europe and 110+ employees globally.

What the role offers you:

  • Independent place of work - you organise and execute your own trips Mon-Fri to visit clients across London, with options to do the admin side of your job from home or your favourite coffee shop  
  • Access to a shared company car during your work hours and an Oyster card for your work trips
  • Travel expenses, hotel accommodation and sustenance paid
  • Being part of a fast-growing global Social Business with a strong mission to drive social change
  • 26 - 30 days’ holiday a year (plus bank holidays!)
  • A company pension scheme
  • Private medical insurance, incl. dental, optical & mental health, co-paid by the company
  • Quarterly team socials in London
  • Annual Summer Party in one of our European markets - think German castles or French beachside
  • Project trips to our farming communities and project partners in the Global South (incl. additional holiday & pay)
  • The prospect of joining the Lemonaid & ChariTea Foundation’s advisory board, participating in the selection process of project partners and distribution of funds
  • Cycle2Work Scheme
  • As many delicious iced teas and soft drinks as you can carry home
  • OTE of £34,675 per year, consisting of a fixed base salary of £28,000, plus a performance-based monthly remuneration, resulting in a potential annual salary of up to £40,000

What we are looking for:

  • You are based in London or within 25 miles of the capital
  • Excellent and confident communicator with great interpersonal skills  
  • Infectious enthusiasm, switched-on and authentic  
  • Independent and autonomous as you will be in the field 80% of the week  
  • Resilient – you don’t take ‘no’ for an answer and have a history of overcoming challenges 
  • A proactive, extrovert approach and an entrepreneurial attitude  
  • Ideally previous experience in sales, business development or customer-facing roles within the hospitality or music industry
